poor sbd quality/ great show
I have only listened to this show about 3 times in my history of shows and my first show was at Hartford a few days later. It is the same reason every time I have tried to enjoy it: the sbd sounds like an aud.
I love the show and thanks a billion for the upload, but this show is odd as a sbd, as are many from '87 in that they sound like audience copies...compare this to any other year, '81, '82 not '83, '84, '85- all sick years for boards (some from '83 are decent- if they exist) but this show, really is lame in terms of sound. JG sounds like he is singing without a mic and the crowd is soooo loud. This is the best copy I have heard and I have been trying to like it since I was turned on to the archive back in 2004, but it just aint happenin...I could burn this to disc by streaming via an fm trnasmitter to my cdr, but just do not want to spend the 2 hours doing it for this type of quality. Downloaing is so easy, when you need to actually hear the whole show and spend the time, it is easy to rule out some shows- this is unfortunately one of them. Great 'estimated' and 'scarlet>fire" as well as great entire 1st set, but poor sbd quality- okay mediocre at best!.

Fond Memories of This Show
I hazily remember a friend of mine came to my window at 3am the night before this show and somehow convinced me to quit my job, get in his car, ingest peyote and drive from New York to Virgina for this show. It was the first Jerry post-coma east coast show and he was as animated as the road runner escaping from wile coyote. The black peter is forever seared in my memory, as was the Octopus acid I took in the parking lot. Loads of fun.

This was the first set of shows I saw after Jerry recovered from his coma. All three nights seemed especially charged--both by my expectations and hopes that Jerry still had the gift, and by the way the band seemed to listen to each other. The second night Terrapin is a good example of Jerry and Bobby competing to see who could lay down the the most powerful monster cord. This night, after easying us out of space with The Wheel, Jerry laid into Black Peter turning it into one of those blow out second set climax songs. It rocked--I'd never hear Black Peter take on that kind of wieght before--It had never had that much meaning or feeling.
